The changes mean that for the first time ‘remote gambling' (gambling through remote means, such as the internet, telephone, television or radio) will be regulated at the point of consumption not the point of supply, ensuring British consumers are always protected, no matter which online gambling site they visit. "All overseas operators will be subject to the same standards and requirements as those based in Britain, as well as being required to inform the Gambling Commission about suspicious betting patterns to help fight illegal activity and corruption in betting," said Mr Penrose.
We all know what that really means. Government wants to control your online activity (big brother, anyone?) and probably take a cut (tax) off your gambling profits...
No harm done, right? I hadn't ever heard about this site, but it looks quite boring as far as bonus and promotions go...
on the contrary, when dafa and 12bet shaved their odds for many (non recreational) players, m88 did not - not for me anyway, so they were my asian bookie of choice and probably as important as pinnacle for me. Bonuses are not the "be all and end all" and although sbo and 188 are good, they are often not quite as good - which translates into many £`s lost.
Out of curiosity , does anyone still get "non-shaved " odds at 12 or dafa ?
I might be a bit out of the loop here... what are "non-shaved" odds?
I gather cairnx means that when you log in to a book the odds are slightly less than the odds you saw before you logged in.
So for example, dafa may have Milan at odds of 2.0, but once you log in the odds may be 1.98....or there abouts.... This is because dafa are offering you the reduced odds...and not because the odds have shifted due to a change in the market.
